Hi - thanks for looking.

What I am looking for is to call upon the experts to see what the best method for doing this is.

I basically need to run an SQL script daily..

SELECT     Code FROM   FF_TALLY_TABLE
WHERE     (Optio_Concat IS NULL)

If there are any records.. I need to pass "Code" into a stored procedure for each record.


Store Procedure name is:

Optio_Concat


That's it.  I'm just not sure the best way to go about it.  Would like to call upon the Experts for this one for the most efficient way.

my article is actually about NOT using a cursor ...


so, it should be like this:
-- starting with the variables you will need in the processing part
declare @code int 

-- here is the table variable definition, which lives only for the duration of the run and is cleaned up automatically
-- for "small" results, it will stay purely in memory; larger sets may be "stored" in the temp database
declare @c table ( code int  )
-- fill the table with data, update your select as you need it
-- if your process requires some "order" in the processing, still an ORDER BY here will be useless (unless you also use and need a TOP X clause) see below on where you have to put the ORDER BY

set nocount on
insert into @c (code)
SELECT     Code FROM   
FF_TALLY_TABLE
WHERE     (Optio_Concat IS NULL)
 and Code  is not null

-- process, either if the above insert did at least 1 row, or if the below "delete" did indeed 
while @@ROWCOUNT <> 0
begin
  -- fetch 1 record from the table. 
  -- if your process requires some "order" in the processing, put the corresponding ORDER BY here
  select top 1 @code= code  from @c

  if @@ROWCOUNT <> 0
  begin
     exec Optio_Concat @code
  end

  -- here we delete the row from the temp table , which is nothing else than a processing queue table, hence
  delete @c where code = @code
END -- end of loop
